Start Up U ‘Sparks’ Students at New Trier BY EMILY SPECTRE DAILYNORTHSHORE.COM

Many teenagers babysit or mow lawns to earn extra money, but some students at New Trier Township High School have grander business ideas in mind. On May 10, students in an incubator business class called “Start Up U” had the opportunity to pitch their business ideas to a panel of judges. The top three teams will go on to compete against 24 teams from high schools all over Illinois and Indiana at an event hosted by Culver Academies. The winning team will receive $25,000 to launch a business idea. Students pitching their ideas were nervous about the challenge, but they found the experience rewarding. “It was super exciting. We got more enthusiastic about our company and its message when we knew were preparing for this event,” Talia Schacht, a sophomore at New Trier, told DailyNorthShore.  Schacht was part of a team pitching a business that makes and sells uniquely designed tote bags decorated with scanned images from recycled magazines. The team already sells bags locally at The Black Sheep store in Glencoe, with plans to expand to more retailers on the North Shore and eventually across the country. All of the teams pitched their business ideas via a Power Point presentation, explaining their

FETCHING FUN DOG PARKS GIVE CANINES, HUMANS SPACE TO UNLEASH BY LIBBY ELLIOTT DAILYNORTHSHORE.COM

On a warm spring or summer day on the North Shore, it can often feel like all of humanity is out walking a dog. It’s true that Chicago’s leafy northern suburbs are a paradise for canines. Between the lake, the beach, and a plentiful supply of off-leash dog parks, there’s ample space for rambunctious pups to run, fetch and wag their way to tired contentment. At Winnetka’s off-leash dog beach at Centennial Park on Sheridan Road, a warm, sunny morning can bring as many as 10 to 15 dogs and their humans out for 30 minutes to an hour or more of playtime, a ritual many dog beach regulars consider an essential component of their daily routine. Winnetka resident Annie Ross takes her 9-month old mini-Australian Shepherd, Nellie, to the dog beach almost every morning - rain, snow or shine. Bringing Nellie to the beach, said Ross - even on a bitterly cold morning – is a necessity for them both. “It’s her social time,” said Annie, who chatted amiably with other dog owners while tossing balls to Nellie. “It’s my social time, too. By coming down here each day, winter didn’t seem quite so daunting.” Nellie is joined most beach mornings Continued on PG 12

NEWS FETCHING FUN Cont. from PG 1 by her four-legged pals, Ryman, Goldie, Bear, Pippa and Henry. In the years before Pippa - a German Shorthaired Pointer - and Henry - an English Springer Spaniel - relocated to Winnetka from the United Kingdom in 2015 with owners Caroline and Lee Betsill, the two dogs lived totally off-leash, running alongside the Betsills’ horses and wandering freely on their property. The Betsills chose their home, in part, for its close proximity to Centennial Park. “Our realtor told us, ‘you’ve got to get a beach pass and get yourself down there,’” said Caroline. Grace Flatt walks the short distance from her home to Winnetka’s dog beach nearly every day with her active, athletic 2-year-old Yellow Labrador Retriever, Goldie, often meeting good friends, Rosalie Ten Bruggencate - dog mom to 3-year old Black Lab Bear - and Ashley Vaughn Bransfield - mama of Ryman, a Border Collie/Blue Heeler mix. “To be honest, if Goldie doesn’t get the proper exercise each day, I’m in trouble,” said Flatt. “I come home to find a rug or chair chewed in my kitchen.” The Winnetka Park District (WPD) maintains strict control over access to Centennial Dog Beach, requiring that owners produce proof of current vaccinations and a village dog license before issuing a key entry card to the enclosed area. Roughly 375 dog passes are issued by the WPD each year. Like most North Shore dog parks, the WPD charges a hefty fee for non-residents. Locals pay just $40 per one-year pass versus $180 for non-residents. In addition to staging a community-wide clean up every May, the WPD’s maintenance crew regularly collects trash and lake debris from the beach throughout the day. Pass holders are expected to abide by a publicly posted list of rules and regulations, including cleaning up their dog’s waste. In the summer months, the WPD turns on a water hose stationed inside Centennial Park to

How Native Is Your Garden? BY EMILY SPECTRE DAILYNORTHSHORE.COM

Go Green Wilmette has always been an advocate of planting native plants in suburban yards and gardens, but about four years ago the group realized that places to purchase native plants were few and far between on the North Shore. That scarcity inspired Go Green to establish its own native plant sale in partnership with the Wilmette Park District. Go Green recommends approximately 60 species — mostly perennials —as well as about a half a dozen trees and shrubs that are beneficial for bird habitat. Go Green Wilmette is not alone – several local organizations host native plant sales each spring to encourage residents to fill their gardens with plants that are indigenous to northern Illinois. Native plants “provide habitat and it is a neat, simple thing people can do,” Karen Glennemeier, a board member of Go Green Wilmette, told DailyNorthShore.  Native plants in suburban yards provide a stepping stone for pollinators as they head to larger, natural areas such as the Cook County Forest Preserve, Glennemeier said. Migrating birds fly thousands of miles and need a place to stop, rest and eat, and native trees and plants tend to host more insects and other creatures for birds to eat.

The Go Green sale on May 12 included plenty of showy plants for purchase, such as blazing star, which blooms pink and purple in the summer. “It’s dramatic little fire works in your garden,” Glennemeier said. Lake Forest Open Lands started selling plants about 15 years ago at an annual Go Native! sale, but it decided to focus on native plants, trees and shrubs when emerald ash borer hit, Peter Gordon, director of land management and operations for Open Lands, told DailyNorthShore. The tiny green beetle was first confirmed in Illinois in 2006, and it spread quickly through suburban areas, ravaging local ash tree populations. As people began losing trees, Open Lands recognized the opportunity to encourage the community to plant things that are native the area rather than imported from afar. According to Gordon, an oak tree can support about 400 species of moths and butterflies. He also said native plants require less water, fertilization and maintenance once they are established. While many people steer clear of native plants because they fear an unruly garden, Gordon said native plants also could be utilized to create a formal, organized look. While many native plant sales were held earlier in May, The Grove’s annual plant sale is coming up on May 19 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 1421 Milwaukee Avenue, Glenview. The sale will

That is part of The Grove’s mission - to preserve a part of Illinois cultural and natural history,” said Judy Beck, vice president and conservation chair for The Gro ve Heritage Association.

The Walgreens that was expected to open in May in the Hubbard Woods business district in Winnetka will likely be opening in early June. The schedule change was caused by a delay in the drugstore’s pharmacy license. “There was a slight delay in processing the license, but we are moving forward and plan to

open the new drugstore in early June,” Phil Caruso, a media relations representative for Walgreens, told DailyNorthShore. The Walgreens pharmacy is opening a new location at 925 Green Bay Road, in a storefront formerly home to Mrs. Green’s Neighborhood Market, a New York-based boutique grocery that closed 10 months after opening. While the space was fully renovated by Mrs. Green’s, Walgreens has added signage and other features unique to Walgreens pharmacies. THE NORTH SHORE WEEKEND

NEWS

Cancer Survivors Reap Royal Beauty Treatments field and Winnetka will host Cancer Survivor Day events this year. The event is not a charity, and Paget personally speaks to every one of the thousands of participants by phone. “I’ve been sitting in one position in my pajamas making phone calls for 12 hours a day, and every night I put on my exercise clothes and go on the treadmill for one hour so I don’t get a blood clot,” she said. But she does get some much needed help from her grandchildren. Paget’s grandson Jasper Blumberg, a senior at Deerfield High School, designed a Cancer Survivor Day flier, and her granddaughter Stefanie Paget, a freshman at Highland Park High School, helped distribute the fliers. Paget said her husband of nearly 52 years has been very supportive and calls Cancer Survivor Day “my other life.” She is also grateful to have the support of the cancer-related organizations that are listed on her website. Some of the organizations include:

Though Barbara Paget’s Cancer Survivor Beauty and Support Day has been going strong for about 15 years, she still would like to reach more cancer survivors. “My goal is to be a ‘Star-Green’,” said Paget. “I want to be on every corner like Starbucks and Walgreens. If every single beauty shop, beauty school, barbershop and spa automatically took part on that day, every cancer survivor in the country would have the option to partake in these services.” The Highland Park resident created Cancer Survivor Day in 2003 to provide a special day of complimentary beauty and spa services to men, women and children cancer survivors regardless of when they were diagnosed. This year the event will be held on June 5. After Paget had participants from all 50 states in 2009, she went to Washington, D.C.: Resolution 494 states that “the first Tuesday in June is Cancer Survivor Beauty and Support Day.” “This is so important because every year there are new cancer survivors and people don’t look at it until it affects them,” said Paget. “Everyone knows someone outside of Illinois who can benefit from Cancer Survivor Day.” Paget said she’s thrilled to have beauty schools on board, because it’s a wonderful education for the students. One of the beauty schools in Bryan, Texas has more than 100 people who come in on Cancer Survivor Day, and the mother of a

Winnetka Skaters Present Axels in Motion BY EMILY SPECTRE DAILYNORTHSHORE.COM

A lot of advance preparation went into the Winnetka Park District’s ice show Axels in Motion, an annual community tradition that celebrated 44 years on May 4 and 5. Each year, organizers begin brainstorming early to come up with an original theme for the show. “This year’s theme was a little different for us. It gave us the ability to use different music from different time periods,” Ashley Coveny, skating school director and director of the ice show, told DailyNorthShore. With a 44-year history, it might be challenging to come up with a unique theme each year. But Coveny relies on feedback from instructors when picking out the theme and music for each act. This year’s theme focused on transportation and travel. For example, one act was accompanied by the 1950s song Grease Lightening, from the soundtrack of the movie Grease. The show is a large production with 42 acts, and it relied on a lot of community support. Parents volunteered during the show, corralling participants in the dressing rooms between acts to ensure that costumes were ready and skaters were on the ice at the right time. Each year about 215 children participate in the show, ranging in age from 3 to 18. Skaters of every level performed in the show,

sharing the skills they mastered, as well as those they were currently working on this spring, Coveny said. Even the littlest tots who are just learning to skate had the opportunity to perform with the

help of older skaters. Experienced skaters went onto the ice during the tots’ act and guided them through the movements and ensured they made it safely off the ice. And in each group act, students had the chance

| SATURDAY MAY 19 | SUNDAY MAY 20 2018

to step out and show off a solo jump or spin. All of the skaters wore professional costumes picked by Coveny to tie in with the theme. This year’s advanced freestyle skaters were dressed as flight attendants in their group act, skating to Come Fly With Me and Rhapsody in Blue. The show was an opportunity for advanced skaters to perform solos, Coveny said. While the skaters do not have to try out to perform in a solo act, they do need to reach a certain skill level. Since it is based on ability, not age, sometimes there can be very young kids who perform solos, Coveny said. For the entire month of April, skaters prepared each week for the ice show. “They are usually excited. They enjoy being in an environment that is fun and high energy. It’s not a lot of pressure,” Coveny said. That’s because the focus of the Winnetka ice show is on community not competition. It’s an opportunity for students to share their skills, have fun and socialize. “It is the skaters’ event to show off to their family and friends and community what they have learned throughout the year,” Coveny said. “The Winnetka Ice Arena is all about community. We want to get everyone to feel involved and a part of that community.” For more information about Axels in Motion go to www.winpark.org. THE NORTH SHORE WEEKEND

LIFESTYLE & ARTS

NORTH SHORE FOODIE

Wilmette Coffeehouse is an Alchemy Attraction BY LIBBY ELLIOT DAILYNORTHSHORE.COM

Many roast masters believe there’s equal parts skill and magic in the perfectly roasted coffee bean. An expert roaster must intuitively “read” the beans, finessing both heat and timing with split-second precision. Tiny adjustments can sometimes lead to radically different - occasionally unexpected - outcomes. So it’s no surprise that veteran coffee roasters Julie and Blair Cooke didn’t feel the need to follow a prescribed recipe when they opened Alchemy Coffee Bar on Linden Avenue in Wilmette 13 years ago; they followed their instincts. When a building Blair loved came up for rent, they grabbed it. Realizing that money was tight, the couple enlisted a talented friend to custom build Alchemy’s bar and seating area out of artfully crafted plywood. And rather than install a fancy sound system, Blair brought in a vintage turntable and records from his extensive vinyl collection. “I knew we were on the right path,” said Blair. “Everything just fell into place.” Alchemy launched in 2005 with a full-time staff of two: Blair handled the in-house roasting; Julie, the baking. The couple earned their sweat equity, and then some. With big dreams and a small budget, the husband and wife business partners transformed a tiny, midcentury-style former dentist’s office into a Wilmette hot spot, where regulars from far and wide pull up by car each morning for a caffeine fix and one of Alchemy’s signature, super-sized scones. There’s no recipe for those, either. As Blair tells it, Julie was pregnant with the couple’s second child when Alchemy first opened its doors. After the baby arrived, Blair - a novice - took over her baking duties, playing a little too fast and loose with the ingredients. “The scones blew up into these big pillows, but they were wonderful,” said Julie. “We’ve been selling them ever since.” On any given morning at Alchemy, customers can expect to find four plates piled with fluffy scones ($3.40) in fruity flavors like fig, mango and date nut, plus banana chocolate chip. If they’re lucky, Alchemy’s regulars can snag a slice of homemade banana cake with chocolate ganache before it disappears. “There are days when our cake sells out before we even put it in the display case, ” said Blair. The 600-square-foot café features a standard menu of coffee house favorites brewed with beans roasted in Alchemy’s sleek Diedrich IR-12 installed behind the bar. Choices include café au lait ($2.80), latte ($3.50), cappuccino ($3.50), chai tea latte ($3.50) and mocha ($3.88) – all served in 12-, 16- and 24-ounce cups, as well as a few of Alchemy’s own high-octane inventions. The Buzz Queen ($3.40 for 12-ounce.) is an Americano coffee served with two extra shots of espresso; the Mocha Bomber ($5.15 for 16-ounce) mixes iced coffee with dark chocolate. And in Alchemy’s version of an iced coffee, an extra espresso is added to maintain flavor as the drink is diluted with melting ice. Alchemy’s bestselling smoothie, The Alchemist, and baked goods to taste like food, not cloying Although Alchemy features a handful of smooth- ($4.85) blends ice, milk, bananas, fig, walnuts, honey sweetness.” ie-style drinks on its menu, it eschews the sugary, and a pinch of salt. Alchemy, while comfortable, is not a place to blended concoctions favored by coffee bar chains. “I don’t want candy,” said Blair. “I want drinks linger for hours on end; there’s no Wi-Fi or plush

leather chairs. The space is small, but functional. Customers are welcome to browse through Alchemy’s eclectic record collection. Reading material is offered in the form of an unabridged dictionary, a nod to Blair’s love of words. In the summertime, Alchemy’s front garden comes to life and customers sit outside at sidewalk tables. But most of the coffee bar’s “regular-regulars” just pop in for their favorite drink and leave with a to-go cup. “We know what they want before they even walk in the door,” said Julie. “By the time they park, their coffee is waiting on the counter.” Some customers come in just to buy a bag of Blair’s best-selling Harrar Eithopia Dark Roast coffee beans, available by the pound ($15.99), along with five other varietals. Bags of Alchemy’s coffee beans are also sold online. Open seven days a week, very little has changed at Alchemy since 2005. The coffee bar’s staff has grown slightly, but Julie and Blair have been careful not to mess with karma. “We have a system,” said Blair. “We do three things really, really well here: coffee, scones and cake. I think simplicity is a good thing. “ Alchemy Coffee House is located at 416 Linden Avenue, Wilmette; 847-251-4334, alchemycoffeehouse.com. THE NORTH SHORE WEEKEND

Six-hit wonder Former club gymnast Connors — a first-year competitor at Highland Park High School — shines at state meet with a six-medal effort, including a gold in the all-around BY BILL MCLEAN SPORTS@NORTHSHOREWEEKEND.COM

The most extraordinary performer at last weekend’s boys gymnastics state meet looked forward to being … ordinary. Off the mats, that is. “I get to be a regular teenager,” said Highland Park High School junior Kevin Connors, referring to a summer in which he won’t devote the bulk of it to sharpening his vast number of skills at Buffalo Grove Gymnastics Center — his club home for nearly eight years. “I’ll still work out, just not as a club gymnast. I’ll get a job, and maybe I’ll caddie.” The 5-foot-8, 145-pound Connors — a first-year high school gymnast — hit the equivalent of monster, super-accurate drives at the state meet at Hoffman Estates High School May 11-12, tying for first place in the all-around (55.6, with Willowbrook senior and University of Illinois Chicago recruit Adam Sousa) on Day One and following that up with a dazzling two-gold, two-silver, one-bronze show in the event finals on Day Two. Only one other boy gymnast from HPHS, Larry Milstein, had left a state meet with a gold medal. Milstein and two others topped the parallel bars

“I think he liked being a vocal teammate, liked being helpful, after going through all of those quiet club practices.”

to be powerful and controlled and smooth. Connors is all three. At one point, as the spectators and judges admired a perfectly still Connors hold a press-to-handstand in the middle of his rings gig, nobody would have been surprised had someone in the bleachers shouted, “Hey, who allowed the established Division I gymnast to enter the field?” Highland Park coach Doug Foerch, also the coach field with a 9.55 in 2005, when School District 113’s of state champion Deerfield, took zero credit for lone boys gymnastics program was a co-op squad Connors’ exceptional repertoire. “Lots of talent, with a high level of skills, plus he’s with athletes from HPHS and Deerfield High consistent,” said Foerch, named Boys Gymnastics School. “Kevin Connors is amazing,” Giants sophomore Coach of the Year (for his work with HPHS and gymnast Lucas Absler said. “Write that down. Write DHS) before the start of last weekend’s event finals. that Lucas Absler said, ‘Kevin Connors is amazing.’ “I didn’t teach Kevin any skills. I helped him with techniques, here and there, and I helped him recon“He’s fun to watch, too,” Absler added. Connors captured gold on still rings (9.6) and figure his routines to conform to the rules of high parallel bars (9.55) in the event finals May 12; took school gymnastics.” Connors, the former club gymnast, entered a silver on high bar (9.35) and tied for runner-up honors on pommel horse (9.4); and bronzed on floor completely different gymnastics world when he opted to compete for his school’s colors.

between drills. “Way better,” Connors said of the atmosphere at high school practices and meets. “Laid back, fun. Not as much pressure. The pressure I felt this weekend was the pressure to help my team (on May 11, during the meet’s segment for the state’s top eight teams; HPHS, in its first appearance in the team competition, placed seventh with 152.55 points). “I didn’t mind that kind of pressure.” Connors had someone else in mind after tying Sousa for the all-around title on the same day. That someone else: Sousa. A state official could hand out only one gold medal for the all-around; another would have to be ordered and delivered later. “I let Adam take the medal,” Connors said on the night he got to haul five event medals home. None of HP’s varsity gymnasts will collect a diploma this spring. In addition to Connors and Absler, Giants gymnasts Tim Steves (junior), Brandon Baban (sophomore), Matt Hyatt (sophomore) and Anthony Hyatt (freshman) all have at least one more year of eligibility. “Kevin became more and more a part of the team as the season went on, and he grew to enjoy the team

concept and the team atmosphere that’s such a unique part of high school gymnastics,” Foerch said. “He ended up loving the chance to help the team.” Connors emerged as an unpaid assistant coach many times this spring. He didn’t mind the extra duty, and he had not choice but to accept the “salary”. “Kevin was there to help out if any of us needed him,” Absler recalled. “If we were doing a routine incorrectly in a practice, he’d give us advice on how to fix it. I think he liked being a vocal teammate, liked being helpful, after going through all of those quiet club practices. “Kevin got into telling us what to do, got into showing us what to do.” Notable: Highland Park/Deerfield boys gymnastics coach Doug Foerch guided Deerfield to its first state championship last weekend, a year after his Warriors placed third at state. One of the most knowledgeable and passionate coaches and judges in the state, Foerch, a multiple Coach of the Year honoree (including 2018), led Mundelein High School teams to boys gymnastics state championships in 1989, 1990, 1993, 1998, 1999 and 2000. He owns a 32-year dual meet record of 239-83 (.742). THE NORTH SHORE WEEKEND

She's all in Volleyball star Lopez proves to be a difference maker for LA’s state-qualifying girls water polo team BY BILL MCLEAN SPORTS@NORTHSHOREWEEKEND.COM

Mary Kate Lopez, a standout volleyball player at Loyola Academy, wanted to be as transparent as possible with her water polo coaches at the school. So the 6-foot-3 junior from Mount Prospect — a right-side hitter and an Oregon State University volleyball recruit — handed her spring club volleyball schedule to her polo coaches early this spring, essentially saying, I will be available for you and my water polo teammates as often as possible. Ramblers water polo coach Kim Przekota appreciated Lopez’s upfront approach. So did Ramblers goalkeepers coach Austin Travers. “You should see her in practice,” said Travers, a former water polo goalie at St. Patrick High

“She’s Tom Brady in the pool — passes it exactly where she wants to pass it, every time.”

School in Chicago and at the University of Illinois (club). “Steam comes out of her ears if a ball gets past her. Such a competitor. “When Mary Kate was able to practice with us,” Przekota added, “she was all in, super competitive.” In goal, for top-seeded LA, in the Glenbrook South Sectional final against second-seeded New Trier May 12: Lopez. She killed Trevians scoring chances with her saves; you couldn’t help but dig her right-on outlet passes to sprinting field players; and now, thanks to her team’s 5-3 victory, she’s all set to help LA accomplish something special at the state tournament this weekend at Stevenson. Kill, dig, set … volleyball terms, yes, but Lopez had nothing but water polo on her mind last weekend in Glenview. “You only have to tell her to do something once; she pick things up quickly,” Travers said. “How about her passing? She’s Tom Brady in the pool — passes it exactly where she wants to pass it, every time.” The last time LA reached the Elite Eight in girls water polo was 2013, when it lost 12-11

to eventual runner-up Lincoln-Way Central in a state quarterfinal. LA (19-12) faces Conant in a state quarterfinal May 18 at 8:15 p.m. “All weekend our girls played with a lot of heart,” said Przekota, whose girls defeated Maine South 21-7 in a sectional quarterfinal

May 10 and downed Glenbrook North 13-3 in a semifinal May 11. “We played great team offense, great team defense.” Ramblers senior tri-captain and Santa Clara University recruit Lauren Voss scored the game’s first two goals, including a five-meter penalty shot, against New Trier (23-10).

for a second day, she also provided an assist on the first of Nicole Kielba’s two first-half goals. “Lauren,” Przekota said, “sometimes wills the team to a win.” LA, which had lost two of three regularseason games to NT, led 2-0 after one quarter and 5-2 at the half in the sectional final. The teams combined for five goals in a 4:14 span in the second f rame. Allie Larkin and Megan Frentzel scored for New Trier. LA’s Aidan Koconis-O’Malley capped the quarter’s scoring at the 1:45 mark, shortly after her stifling defense at the other end of the pool triggered a fast break. “We had really good momentum from our quarterfinal and semifinal wins,” said fourthyear varsity member Voss, who received a nice lead pass from Kielba before tallying her first goal in the sectional final at 3:21 in the first quarter. “Then, after going up 2-0 against New Trier, we got our swagger and kept playing hard, despite being kind of tired in the fourth quarter. “New Trier,” she added, “adjusted well in the second half, played better defensively.” Neither team scored in the second half until NT’s Emily McKenzie cut the deficit to 5-3 with 2:21 remaining in the final quarter. Intelligent efforts from the Ramblers sealed the big victory. “Loyola came out with high energy and put us down early,” said Trevians coach Matt Wendt, whose club blanked LA in the final 15:45, or for two-plus quarters. “Its press defense was so good; we couldn’t get anything done on the offensive end to catch up. We didn’t have enough movement or driving to help break the press and make good passes. “Congratulations to Loyola’s girls,” he added. “They played very well.” They had played often in between regularseason games as well, though keeping score was never a priority, and the gatherings had little to do with water polo. “We all got together for a scavenger hunt,” Voss said. “But I’m not sure who won. Team bonding has been important to us from the start of the season. We hang out at teammates’ houses, eat some food and drink some water together.” Polo is a grueling sport in the water. Przekota conducts drills at practice that mimic the quarters of games. She typically saves the most exhausting ones for the end, hoping her girls are able to summon their resolve up when their legs and arms feel like anvils. “At that point in a practice,” Voss said, “we’re all shouting, ‘Fourth quarter, fourth quarter, fourth quarter.’ ” THE NORTH SHORE WEEKEND

Pretty (special) in pink New Trier jumper/sprinter Kunkler turns heads with more than her bright attire in sectional meet BY KEVIN REITERMAN SPORTS@NORTHSHOREWEEKEND.COM

Wearing bright neon pink compression socks and a matching pink headband, Sydney Kunkler wasn’t looking to blend into the woodwork. Just … the opposite. She’s not the bashful sort. Kunkler doesn’t mind having her name in lights. “I’m an actress,” she says, with a wide smile. The effervescent Kunkler also is a rather unique athlete. The junior helped the New Trier girls track and field team to a first-place team finish at the Class 3A Niles West Sectional on May 10. The 5-foot-10 ¼ Kunkler leaped and bounded her way to a first-place finish in the triple jump (36-8) and a second-place finish in the long jump (17-10 ½). She also anchored the 4x100 relay (3rd, 50.71). She remains one of New Trier’s star attractions. “She’s been able to blend the arts with athletics,” said NT assistant coach Jamie Klotz. “It’s hard to balance all that. But she’s done it real well this spring.” The stage definitely is a draw. But so is the euphoria of flying through space. “She might be a happy-go-lucky kid,” Klotz said. “But she’s also very focused. “She competes with a never-say-die attitude,” the coach added. “She’s got great speed down the runway, and she applies the fundamentals very well.” To her credit, Kunkler has kept her competitive edge in both fields. “Juggling theater and track, the practices and rehearsals, can be difficult,” admitted Kunkler. But she’s figured it out. Kunkler’s roles as an actress are adding up. She started performing in Children’s Theater several years ago. As an eighth-grader, she played the role of Jafar in the stage version of Aladdin. And earlier this spring, she was a cast member in New Trier’s Lagniappe-Potpourri variety show. As a triple and long jumper, Kunkler just keeps getting better. A three-time sectional champ, she will be competing in her third straight state meet in Charleston this weekend. “This year, she’s going to go down there as a seasoned jumper,” said New Trier head coach Robert Spagnoli. “And there’s no reason for her to be nervous. Just go down there and score.” Her arrow is pointing up. Kunkler came up with personal bests in both the long and triple jumps at the sectional meet. “By an inch and by an inch,” said Kunkler. And, despite being seeded No. 1 in her specialty — the triple jump — Kunkler didn’t dare go into the sectional overconfident. “Nothing is assured,” she said. “I’m pretty motivated not to take anything for granted.” There’s a good reason for that — especially after the CSL South Meet on May 3 at Maine South. It was not Kunkler’s finest hour. She finished behind

44

ing the school record at New Trier, which Madga Wicker currently holds (37-1). “Hopefully, I can break it at state,” said Kunkler. She will need a breakout performance to put her in medal-winning territory. This year’s state competition is loaded with freakish talent, including Neuqua Valley freshman Riley Ammenhauser (40-6). No doubt, Kunkler will be decked out in pink at the showcase meet in Charleston. “When I first started wearing the pink ones [compression socks], I thought maybe they were too obnoxious,” said Kunkler. “But I ended up liking them. I think they add some flair. “Marne [Sullivan] also wears them, as well as others on our team,” she added. “We’re making it a tradition.” Who knows? Kunkler might even take that tradition to her new jumping destination. “Track has open up a lot of doors for me,” she said. Having good grades and test scores also is making her attractive to track coaches at highlevel schools such as Wake Forest, Georgetown, Villanova and Princeton. “I’ve gotten the dialogue started with some schools,” said Kunkler. “It’s pretty exciting. College will be a new chapter in my life.” Notable: New Trier tallied 100.5 points to win the sectional, ahead of Evanston (81) and Highland Park (69). The Trevians got off to a great start, when Emma Braband, Kiran Awatramani, Caroline Trukenbrod and Bridget Forbes teamed up to win the 4x800 relay in 9:29.57. Forbes was superb in the anchor role. “She was great, and she was gritty,” said NT head coach Robert Spagnoli. “The rest of the state might not know how good Bridget Forbes is. But we know.” … As always, the Trevians had several other strong showings in the distance races. In the 3200 meters, Leah Ulrich took first in 11:06.15 by outkicking Maine South’s Kathleen Glockner (11:07.09). Teammate Ellie Finnegan advanced with a third-place finish (11:08.56). Two New Trier runners — Marne Sullivan (3rd, 2:14.46) and Savannah Noethlich (5th, 2:19.51) — made the state cut in the 800. … NT’s other sectional champ was junior Emma Fowkes in the 100 hurdles (15.95), while the team’s other state qualifiers included Natalie Karabas in the high jump (4th, 5-2) and the 4x400 relay team of Fowkes, Noethlich, TRIPLE THREAT, SINGULAR EFFORT: New Trier’s Sydney Kunkler competes in the triple jump at the Sullivan and Grace McManus (2nd, 3:59.57). … Niles West Sectional.

More than a building block Johnson turning in an all-star season for Loyola Academy's boys volleyball team BY BILL MCLEAN SPORTS@NORTHSHOREWEEKEND.COM

Drake Johnson was told he screamed in agony after attempting to block a punt in a seasonopening freshman football game more than three years ago. The Loyola Academy senior — now an exoutside linebacker/tight end and a current rightside hitter for the varsity volleyball team — has an airtight excuse for not being able to remember his immediate reaction to fracturing a tibia and smashing a growth plate around a knee at Marquette High School in Wisconsin. “I blacked out,” says the 6-foot-7, 210-pound Johnson, sitting in a chair on the balcony above the Ramblers’ main gym floor before a recent evening practice. Johnson, a resident of the Old Irving neighborhood in Chicago, underwent three surgeries after an ambulance transported him off the gridiron

No one can stop him. He’s been our guy on offense, coming up with big kills, timely kills.

on that late-August day: one before his freshman volleyball season, one during it and one in the fall of his sophomore year. “I remember seeing him get around in a wheelchair at school,” Ramblers senior middle Matt Wiertel says. The hard-hitting, left-handed Johnson has been upright and on a roll this spring, having been named to the all-tournament team at each of the Vernon Hills, Wheaton Warrenville South and Downers Grove South invites. Loyola Academy boys volleyball coach Lionel Ebeling needed a steady, powerful front-row player to emerge after 6-5 junior outside hitter Jack Howard — LA’s kills leader last spring — suffered a serious ankle injury in this spring’s first practice and had to miss significant playing time. Johnson, a D1 Volleyball Club member and the current kills leader among Ramblers, did that. In wins against Metea Valley, Prospect and St. Francis, Johnson finished with respective kill totals of 15, 13 and 12. His eight kills and two blocks helped LA defeat host Evanston 25-21, 25-23 on May 4, as the Ramblers improved their record to 16-10. “Drake certainly has the right set of tools to play right side,” Ebeling says of the tri-captain TALLER THAN AN ANTENNA, MORE POWERFUL THAN A ...: Loyola Academy’s Drake Johnson makes a (with Wiertel and senior middle Tom Declan). play at the net during earlier action this spring.

“He’s lefty. He’s tall. You have to love those traits, right? Drake makes high contact, finds open spaces with his ability to read blocks well. Gets high, hits hard — that’s what Drake does for us. With Jack Howard back, we have quite the dual threat. “And Drake’s blocking,” the coach adds, “has improved a great deal since last season.” Johnson’s interest in architecture shot up after his devastating leg injury in 2014. The young man suddenly had free time, plenty of it. Unable to commit to hours on volleyball courts, he joined Loyola Academy’s architecture club and caught the planning/designing/construction bug. “I’d always liked building things, making little things here and there, before the start of my Loyola years,” Johnson says. “I was into LEGO, yes. I remember freshman year, in architecture club, thinking, ‘I really like this.’ I then looked up a lot of information about the field of architecture and became even more interested in it.” Johnson became an officer — special events coordinator — of the architecture club and oversaw the remodeling of the school’s theology office. The project, which made the space more spacious, took a semester and a half to complete. “Big project,” says Johnson, who intends to major in architecture and play club volleyball at the University of Kansas. His eighth-grade volleyball team at Immaculate Conception-St. Joseph School in Chicago (Old Town) was a big deal. It went 11-0 in the regular season and reached the semifinal round of a city tournament for Catholic schools. None of the other sports teams at the school came close to matching the squad’s success in the 2013-14 academic year. There’s a story behind Drake Waltom Johnson’s first name. Drake’s parents, Dave (a former hockey player at his alma mater, Glenbard East) and Crissy (a former standout prep basketball player in Iowa), had tutored and mentored Cabrini Green children, accompanying some of them to Cubs games and other field trips that had nothing to do with a baseball field. One of the couple’s youngsters, Anthony, went by “Drake”. “My parents,” Johnson says, “liked the name.” Wiertel likes Johnson’s volleyball game. A lot. “No one can stop him,” Wiertel, a Mount Prospect resident, says. “He’s been our guy on offense, coming up with big kills, timely kills. He gets high up, way up there, and he’s more consistent at putting kills away this year than he was last year. “We count on him to bring a lot of energy each time we compete.” Notable: Loyola Academy’s boys volleyball team improved to 22-12 by placing second in the Evanston Invite on May 11-12 and downing DePaul Prep 25-9, 25-12 on May 14.

Setting the tone Van Den Akker plays the role of igniter as Giants turn in solid effort at sectional meet BY KEVIN REITERMAN SPORTS@NORTHSHOREWEEKEND.COM

By meet’s end, Annelise Van Den Akker was pretty well tuckered out. Her body was spent, after she went all out — and then some — to complete a tough triple: 200 dash, 400 dash and 4x100 relay. Her mind? Keen as ever. A few minutes after missing a state-qualifying time in the 200 meters at the Class 3A girls track and field sectional at Niles West on May 10, lucid — and enlightening — words came out of her mouth. “It’s all worth it,” said a dead-tired Van Den Akker, a junior sprinter for Highland Park High School. “And … it’s voluntary. I did sign up for this.” Van Den Akker, who was born in Florida and

second off. “This relay is a special group,” added the HP coach. “They hold one another accountable. And they are clearly happy for each other.” Edelchik, who also competed in the triple jump (11th, 32-5), is a good fit for the second leg. She brings a veteran presence. And the Haiti-born Liberius has been a fast riser in HP’s program. “This is only her second year in track,” said Palmberg. “She’s learning a lot. “She’s very competitive,” the coach added. “And she’s fast. She’s got a great turnover rate.” Meanwhile, Gilling was one of the stars of the Niles West Sectional. She stole the show with her runaway victories in the 100 meters (11.96) and 200 meters (24.70). Her clocking in the 100 was a school record. Gilling, who missed last year due to an injury, also turned on the afterburners by anchoring HP’s statequalifying 4x200 relay. She teamed up with Allison Antman, Riley Williams and Liberius to take third in 1:44.59 — well under the state cut of 1:45.52. “She’s just so competitive,” said Palmberg. Gilling, who also is the school-record holder in the 200, will be looking to do something special Downstate. She has the sixth best sectional time in the state in the 100 — and the fourth best in the 200. The last time that a HP sprinter placed at state was 2014, when Nyjah Lane took eighth in the 100 (12.37). Lane, who is a senior at Eastern Illinois, also earned a state medal in the 100 in 2013 (4th, 12:09). Meanwhile, HP’s other standout, Stephanie Kriss, also advanced to this weekend’s state meet. The sophomore went up against a loaded field in the 800 meters and took runner-up honors in a personal-best time of 2:12.67. Kriss also took fourth in the 1600 (5:12.05), while HP senior Ellie Sullivan placed fourth in the shot put (33-0 ¾) and fifth in the discus (99-2). Teammate Nateciya Gidron-Noutai ended up sixth in the discus (98-5).

It’s nice to have someone like Annelise in the lead leg. So solid. So steady. Super reliable. You give her instructions for the race, and she’ll say, ‘Okay, I got it.’

She didn’t quite make it out in the 200 (3rd, 26.38) and 400 (3rd, 1:00.19), but Van Den Akker did join forces with junior Taylor Edelchik, sophomore Ketura Liberius and junior Taylor Gilling to take first place in the 4x100 relay (48.76). It was a brilliant performance by the four Giants, who had to blast by Evanston (49.79) and New Trier (50.71) to win the gold. Van Den Akker, a field hockey player in the fall, set the tone — and the pace. “It’s nice to have someone like Annelise in the lead leg,” said HP head coach Sarah Palmberg, who saw her team take third in the team standings with 69 points. “So solid. So steady. Super reliable. You give her instructions for the race, and she’ll say, ‘Okay, I got it.’ “She’s always there. Always ready to go,” the Giants coach added. Triggering the 4x100 relay has its benefits — and rewards. “I love starting the race with the baton in my hand,” said Van Den Akker. “I like that the 4x100

Notable: It’s been a stellar season for the Giants. On May 3, they claimed first-place honors in the CSL North Meet at Wolters Field. They beat Deerfield by 30 points, 143-113.

Dentist leads a fulfilling life BY BILL MCLEAN ILLUSTRATION BY BARRY BLITT

Dentist Mark Landau mounts his bicycle at his home in Northbrook and pedals, pedals, pedals. Freedom. It ’s early in the morning. Maybe it ’s a windless day, or maybe the wind is a biting one. All that matters is that he’s on the road, in full churn. The same dentist sits across f rom me at Countr y Kitchen in Highland Park. I want to know exactly what he’s thinking when he sits atop the bike and hears the constant, near-hypnotic whir of the wheels. “ The wheel in f ront of me,” Landau says. “My breathing. That ’s my time to clear my mind. Great stress relief, nothing like it. I look for ward to riding ever y day. “All I’m focusing on is what ’s going on around me.” Avid cyclist and sailor, dentist, photographer, author, family man, traveler, philanthropist — Dr. Landau is all of them, and I get the feeling he’s a laser-focused and in-the-moment man no matter where he is, no matter what he happens to be doing. One day in early 2016, while conversing with one of his patients in his S kokie office, Landau received a genuine compliment f rom the patient, a painter, about one of the f ramed Landau photographs adorning a wall. Landau specializes in cosmetic and restorative dentistr y ; it must be comforting and highly reassuring for a patient to view a dentist ’s attention to detail and appreciation f or beaut y in another field. “ You need to apply for a galler y showing,” the patient insisted. “I was humbled,” Landau recalls minutes before the arrival of his scrambled eggs (with spinach, mushrooms and broccoli), f ruit cup and hash browns. Landau applied for a galler y showing at The Art Center-Highland Park. His work was accepted. He showed 12 of his striking photographs last summer, with some 300 folks showing up for the showing. Landau? Humbled, again. And grateful. And appreciative. “My [late] father, Bill, had a big influence on me,” says Landau, a graduate of now-defunct Niles East High School in Skokie. “He wasn’t just a c linical microbiologist and medical school professional; he was also an inventor, a woodworker, a photographer who knew how to use a camera to tell a stor y. He made

My father had a good eye, a creative eye, and he taught me the importance of being meticulous, of taking pride in ever ything I do. “ ‘ I t ’s O K , ’ m y father liked to remind me, ‘if it takes a lot of time to do something right.’ ” Landau has found time to ser ve on the boards of The Ar t Center-Highland Park and Pass W ith F lying Colors, an organiz ation that prepares Chicago’s underser ved first-generation students for college and career success. The good dentist mentors a Honduran who attends Malcolm X College in Chicago and wants t o b e a d e n t a l hy g i e n i s t someday. “ W hat a wonderful, hardworking young man,” Landau says, adding mentors arrange afterschool tutoring sessions and field trips to city museums and theaters when their mentees are in high school. “If he were your son, you’d be ver y proud of him.” The father of Emil y and Adam, with his wife, Beth, a n a t t o r n e y, D r. Landau wrote a book, Atlas of Cosmetic Dentist r y : A P a t i e n t ’s Guide (Q uintessence Publishing, 2007). It ’s for patients and dentists interested in cosmetic and dental implant procedures, featuring before-andaf ter photographs of his patients and presenting solutions to a full spectrum of dental problems. “I’m in this business to promote qualit y health and

completed his residency at Michael Reese Hospital and Medical Center in Chicago. “It ’s gratifying, a tremendous feeling, to change the way people feel about themselves. A patient said to me, ‘I work with people ever y day. I want to feel confident in f ront of those people. P lease fix my smile.’ I love showing up at my office and working with a wonderful and unbelievably talented staff. I’m never in a hurr y to leave my office. “Dentistr y,” he adds, “is a true melding of technolog y and creativity.” Activities, rigorous ones, keep Landau sharp and energetic. He trained for his first triathlon in dental school, and he has raced in a pair of Chicago Marathons. O utings with his cycling group invigorate him. Always. W hen Landau was 13, a good f riend and running partner, 10-year-old Troy, taught him how to sail and windsurf. Dr. Landau and Troy sail together these days. Cycle together, too. Landau shifts gears, to the topic of photography, as we prepare to exit our booth at Countr y Kitchen. The voracious reader of books written by professional photographers has some thoughts about the late Ansel Adams, c licker extraordinaire of iconic black-and-white landscape photographs. “Ansel Adams had a vision of how he wanted a photo to turn out well before he took the shot,” Landau says. “All those great photos he took — he did not get lucky. He’d wait and wait and wait until he saw, before him, the vision he had imagined. He was a patient man. He was a great photographer.” Mark Landau’s dentist off ice is located at 4709 Golf Road, Suite 809, in Skokie. For more information about Landau, the artist, please visit marklandauphotography.com.
